Singapore Travel Vaccines and Advice

While traveling to Singapore, please keep in mind some routine vaccines such as Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, etc.

With its many skyscrapers with glass facades, its Buddhist temples and huge shopping centers, Singapore is the perfect place to start discovering Asia. If Singapore’s history interests you, visit its unmissable monuments in colonial neighbourhoods like the Palladian style houses. Simultaneously, do not hesitate to enter the restaurants to taste the local culinary specialties. Chicken rice and Chinese chicken rice with a touch of spicy sauce are essential dishes to try out. If you are not in a hurry to return, visit its islands, including Jurong, Sentosa or Pulau Tekong. Sentosa, a land that once sheltered pirates, now has a huge and remarkable zoo. If you’re with your family, make sure you visit the East Coast Park Leisure Park, which is located by the sea.
